Both Gold Coast City and Western Pride let the lead slip as the two sides drew 3-3 in a see-sawing affair at Duncan McKenna Field.
City overcame an early injury to goalkeeper Shane Viitakangas to storm to a two goal advantage inside quarter of an hour courtesy of Jarrod Kyle and Rhys Saunders.
Pride mounted an unlikely fightback as Joseph Duckworth halved the deficit prior to the break, before Bonventure Thomas-Remijo and debutant Anthony Poljak struck after the hour to give the visitors the lead.
However, less than a minute later a dramatic reply from Daniel Dragicevic put paid to Pride’s hopes of recording their first win at the venue since 2013.
